I have seen conflicting post on this topic. Does anyone know the correct answer?

Bulldogger,


I don't know, but the panels are only a small anount of the total contrast ratio equation.


The panels themselves do better than 500:1. It is optical path design that makes some of the biggest differences.


For instance, Sanyo used Epsons panels for the XP21n and got very close to 700:1. Epson has never gotten that high with any of their projector to date.

Someone on the forum that saw the 11HT said they could not see the pixels compared to the 10HT. Could it be that Sony designed a new 1366x768 16x9 panel with a delta staggered configuration!? (like on the 400q) and they still make the other 16x9 lcd panels used on the 10HT and give them to Sanyo's plv-60? I would definitely like to see the delta staggered pixel configuration, although it's not as good for displaying computer graphics (I don't care about this) I just want a good home theater projector!

Yes, I am going to see what Sony is up to before I make a purchase.

I have viewed the 11ht here in Australia and did notice that the pixels seemed to be of a differednt shape when I stood right up to the screen. Did not think anythin of it at the time but you may be right about the delta, they looked a bit like z.
